In a night with a handful of goaltending injuries, the only one that matters to me is Garret Sparks. I'm writing this through my tears (kidding, kind of), so bear with me if I misspell anything or just start mashing the keys in agony.
How about that Bernier, though?
*whispers* pity point, pity point, pity point...

Question: Who doesn't love a good troll job?
Answer: Half of the Leafs Nation proper, as evidenced by the troll job being executed today by the other half of Leafs Nation proper.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have seven days to go before they next take the ice in a game.. and apparently, the club will be pretty busy moving players up and down in that time.
Mike Babcock suggests that James Reimer and Jonathan Bernier will both be back next week. Garret Sparks will return to Marlies.— Jonas Siegel (@jonasTSN1050) December 9, 2015
The Leafs, according to TSN's Jonas Siegel, will be bringing Jonathan "Nelson Mandela" Bernier back up from the AHL's Toronto Marlies next week for the game against the Tampa Bay Lightning.
James Reimer, in addition, is expected to be ready to play; that means that the Leafs will no longer be carrying a goaltending tandem made up of their two AHL prospects heading into their game on the 15th.
Translation? Garret Sparks is headed back to the Toronto Marlies.

If you didn't watch the Leafs as they took on Lou Lamoriello's old New Jersey Devils club (albeit with a heavy facelift), you honestly missed out.
What did you miss, you might ask?
You missed a pair of good goaltenders.
You missed strong offensive rushes by defensemen.
You missed special teams battles.
You missed James van Hockey scoring.
Most of all, though, you missed an onslaught of Garden State references by The Leafs Nation. And that, my friends, is a damn shame.

After watching William Nylander wow the crowds for Team Sweden at the 2015 World Junior Championship - and battling mixed feels over the chemistry of Max Domi and Anthony Duclair for Team Canada, as neither truly benefit us in the long run - Leafs fans are long overdue for their World Juniors superstar to take home a gold medal.
After the unfairness of watching Connor Brown get snubbed by Team Canada in 2014, after watching Morgan Rielly fail to take home gold in 2013, after watching Freddie Gauthier only register one assist at last year's games... it's about time Toronto has a real shot of watching a prospect blow the world away.
This year? They'll get to hopefully watch two.
